If you have had your personal information impacted by the Smith Protective data breach, contact a data privacy attorney to investigate your claim. You may be able to file a class action data breach lawsuit to compensate you for your time, financial losses, and future risk of identity theft.
In early August 2021, Smith Protective Management became aware of suspicious activity in its IT network, and began an investigation into the security breach. Smith hired cybersecurity specialists and determined that 79,450 individuals (current and former employees) may have had their personal information compromised in a data breach between July 30, 2021 and August 1, 2021.
Smith Protective announced that the impacted information of employees may include the following:
- Social Security number
- Financial account information
Smith is now providing current and former employees with guidance on how to protect themselves against identity theft and fraud, which is a real risk following any data breach and data theft event.
